1st finish of 2012, but where was my brain?

I finished the pink, gray and brown zig zag quilt. But just look at it - where was my brain?! When I trimmed the sides I should have trimmed them the same. You can see what I did wrong can't you? I did not see my mistake until it was too late - like the binding was on it! Oh well, the kid is going to get it anyway.

Look at all the deer that were in my backyard on Sunday - eight of them in two groups. They were digging thru the snow looking for breakfast. We didn't get that much snow - only about a couple of inches.

Hancock's have been having some good sales lately and here is was I received Saturday. I loved the rock n' roll roses and bought 6 yards of that. It was only $3.98 a yard.

Here is my next project. I started this quilt last year, but never had time to finish it.

Isn't it funny that we get so into our work sometimes that we can't see the big things! I hope I can get through the year without buying ANY fabric. I bought a lot for quilt backs in December and had to put them away this week. Ugh. There was no room! I'll be chanting "don't buy fabric" all year!
